Tasty Tuesday – Italian Chicken Bake

My girlfriend that blogs over at Inside My Belly shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago and I’ve made it twice already. For an easy dinner recipe, you can’t go wrong with this one, it only requires 4 ingredients. I’m probably going to make it again this week! Check it out below:

Ingredients

3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
4-6 Tablespoons Prepared Pesto
1-2 Roma Tomatoes
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
Instructions

Trim the chicken and lay them in a glass baking dish in a single layer.
Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the pesto on top of each chicken breast.
Cut the roma tomatoes into slices approx 1/2″ thick and lay 2 slices on top of each chicken breast.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the chicken breasts.
Bake at 400F for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is done and the juices run clear.
Serve over a bed of rice or a plate of pasta. Enjoy!

The recipe can be found here.

Mods: I seasoned my chicken with Lawry’s Seasoning Salt, black pepper and garlic powder.

I put the cheese on after it was done.

This is the first time I made it and it warranted those modifications:

Burnt cheese is not the business!

Verdict: This is being added to my rotation, like I said, I’m probably going to make it again this week!

Bon Appetit!
